    Kona Hot Serial Number List:

    That is a 1998 made with 853 with correct stickers and dropouts. Tom stopped making Hots for Kona in 1995ish. Never used 853 tubing on those indeed it didn't exist or if it did barely

    Kona Hot Serial Number List:

    Its gotta be as simple as it qas redone a decade later or something. Heavily touched up paint. Whatever decals at hand snd modified for single speed. Here are the dropouts on my brodie. Some resemblance. It too is a mix of prestige tubing but I sont know if the dropouts were made by Brodie or...

    Kona Hot Serial Number List:

    Certainly a weird mix I'll leave conclusions to others but I've never seen dropouts like that on a Kona. My brodie Sovereign has scalloped ones similar. Tom made frames for other bikes ? Or maybe it had new dropouts added. The decals are for sure not original as he was done making Hots long...

    ** Show us your Modern/retro Kona **

    That's a 95 fork too (if original) so had a longer AC length that those from 90/91 Shouldn't impact things too much.

    Unusual Kona models or colours

    Thanks Pip, I have never actually seen one in person. Are they actually more yellow? All I have seen online look orangey to me. I guess its a fine line.

    1998 Kona Lava Dome Resto Mod Project (Caldera P11 Onwards)

    4.6 using the same kitchen scale. It's a size larger thought (19 vs 18)

    1998 Kona Lava Dome Resto Mod Project (Caldera P11 Onwards)

    Cool to see the weight! When I weighed that brodie Sovereign it was 4.00 LB which is crazy light for steel.

    Stem bolts always seem to be the ones that rust on me too. I'll habe to measure later on

    1996 Kona Hei Hei - The First King Kahuna

    Lol. I don't disagree but she's a rider so I'm not going to fuss spending hundreds extra extra for the really small details. Lord knows I've spent enough on this bike already hah.

    They spec'd the titec bontrager ones which I have a couple of as well. I don't think these even really came on many factory bikes. Just for order

    1994 Brodie Sovereign - DeKerf Paintjob

    Don't necessarily disagree. These are just the tires I had on hand and I quite like them. They do make them in Blackwall so will replace once these are done.

    1994 Brodie Sovereign - DeKerf Paintjob

    A few fairly major changes. The new seatpost is in and so are the new forks. Kona triple butted P2. Threaded. There is a 96 velocity stem on there for now but likely will find something black eventually. I also came across a black set of threadless TB P2 forks so I have the option to go that...
